Aloha Beach Festival
We escaped to Ventura beach for a taste of Hawaii at the Aloha Beach Festival.
The festival is free admission; but we did pay $5 for parking. I've never seen such enthusiasm from a parking attendant before. He would excitedly wave people into the lot, then start counting the wad of money he had collected.
At the festival were several vendor and food booths along with an entertainment stage. We got the lay of the land; and saw surfers out in the distance. I think there was some sort of surfing contest going on. A K-9 Frisbee performance was scheduled; but didn't see where that was. The only thing that we found that the girls were interested in were the hula hoops scattered on the lawn that a vendor was selling. The girls had fun hula hooping while the hula dancing was being performed.
Since there was not much else to do, we walked down a few steps to the beach. We spent quite a bit of time there, then grabbed a sno-cone and left for home.
